Jonathan Mossberg, the CEO of iGun Technology Corporation, points to different problems.
company is working on a smart shotgun which, according to a report by the National Institute of Justice
, "could be considered the first personalized firearm to go beyond a prototype to an actual commercializable or production-ready product."
"A lot of guys that talk about this technology and write about it and stuff, they don't know that guns need to be taken apart to be maintained to be reliable," said Mossberg
"Every time you do something to make it more difficult for the bad guy to access it, you make it more difficult for the good guy to make it reliable."
isn't skeptical of remote shutdown technology but of the feasibility of scaling that function without the costs being prohibitive.
also warns that disabled smart guns could be hacked back into functionality, although that's a problem more expensive and higher-quality models could all but eliminate.
